Featuring a 12.5x wide zoom lens (24-300mm*), the SH-25MR does away with buttons and gives you access to key features via a touch-sensitive LCD – and Olympus’ clever Live Guide interface. Live Guide makes it easy to adjust various settings. You can also use the touch panel to check GPS & Electric Compass for map and landmark information, or to run a Multi-Effect Slideshow that displays images from one trip with background music and transition effects.

The SH-25MR features Multi Framing which captures close-ups and wide shots of the same scene all at once. it also has Multi Recording that gives you the option to record a 1080p Full HD movie in the background while you concentrate on taking still photos.

Available in gold, black, red and white, the SH-25MR hits the shops in April, priced £229.99.

This new Traveller flagship camera has a faster AF, brighter LCD and features like Multi Framing and Live Guide are even easier to use. It has a 24x wide optical zoom lens (25-600mm*), a 16-Megapixel backlit
CMOS sensor and two separate TruePic V image processors to improve low-light performance, speed up camera response and enhance scene and subject recognition.

New iHS technologies, combined with with high-speed sequential shooting and high-speed autofocus, iHS cuts down picture noise and enhances resolution and colour gradation with fast-moving subjects, night scenes and other tricky shots.

As with the SH-25MR, the SZ-31MR features Multi Framing and Multi Recording options. You also change settings and access the Live Guide via the touch-sensitive bright 3 iinch 920,000-dot LCD.

The SZ-31MR goes on sale in late March 2012 for £299.99.
